1 teaspoon canola oil

1 teaspoon unsalted butter

2 leeks, white parts only, well-washed and chopped

1 head cauliflower, broken into florets

1 medium all-purpose potato, cubed

6 cups white chicken Stock


Freshly ground pepper

1/2 cup 1 percent low-fat milk (optional)

4 leaves fresh parsley


  1. Combine the oil and butter in a large saucepan. Warm over medium-low heat. Add the leeks and stirring frequently, allow them cook slowly for 10 minutes. Do not brown. 
  2. Stir in the cauliflower, potatoes, and stock. Season with the salt and pepper. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes, or until the vegetables are very tender. Remove form the heat and allow to cool slightly. 
  3. Transfer to a blender or a food processor fitted with the metal blade. Process until smooth. Transfer to a clean saucepan and place over medium heat. Bring to a simmer. Taste and adjust the seasoning. If the soup is too thick, thin with the milk.
